Thank you SPARK PTO for out $100 mid-year grant! We were able to purchase supplies for a weather unit for our first grade students focusing on the following standards:
S1E1. Students will observe, measure, and communicate weather data to see patterns in weather and climate.
a. Identify different types of weather and the characteristics of each type.
b. Investigate weather by observing, measuring with simple weather instruments (thermometer, wind vane, rain gauge), and recording weather data (temperature, precipitation, sky conditions, and weather events) in a periodic journal or on a calendar seasonally.
c. Correlate weather data (temperature, precipitation, sky conditions, and weather events) to seasonal changes.
We are looking forward to connecting what we learn about weather to how it affects the plants in the garden.
